UPDATE – ENCORE TELECONFERENCE from Biglaw to Yourlaw – JANUARY 9, 2009 (Thursday) at 3 pm EST. Sign up below. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SIGNED UP YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY RECEIVE INFORMATION ON THE CALL VIA EMAIL.
Given that 1762 lawyers lost their jobs in 2008 according to the Law Shucks Layoff Tracker, I decided to release a new e-book entitled From Biglaw to Yourlaw. You’ve always believed starting a firm was a last resort. Now, it may be your only resort. My only goal in the book, which gives an overview of the current economic situation and dispells some of the myths associated with starting a firm, is to convince large firm attorneys to view starting a law firm as a viable option. I also wanted to provide an objective view of starting a practice – neither the naysaying, “it can’t be done” perspective of law schools and large firm lawyers nor the “you can work 4 hours a week and earn gazillions” perspective of some disreputable marketers and gurus. As with everything else, reality lies somewhere in between.
